2011 Australian 3D TV reviews

Campbell Simpson (PC World)

June 16, 2011

Samsung LED D8000

Every Australian 3D TV we've reviewed this year

If you're in Australia, you've got maybe half a dozen big brands to choose a 3D TV from. We've looked at a whole stack — here's our list of every Panasonic, Samsung, Sony, LG, Sharp or Toshiba 3D TV we've reviewed this year.

Samsung Series 8 (UA55D8000)

The Samsung Series 8 (UA55D8000) 3D LED TV is one of the best panels on the market for watching Full HD content. The level of detail it can display from a high quality source is excellent. It's also packed full of features -- even if some of them aren't quite up to scratch -- and has an excellent design. If you can afford to spend the coin it's a quality product, even though some of its integrated Web features aren't as well implemented as we were hoping.

Rating: 4.25 stars


Samsung Series 8 (PS64D8000)

Samsung Plasma D8000

The 2011 edition of Samsung's Series 8 plasma is, as we'd expected, an impressive piece of technology. Its sound and visuals are great, and the inclusion of various 'Smart TV' features makes the Series 8 a useful multimedia device as well as a traditional TV. The built-in Web browser isn't perfect and we'd definitely prefer a notebook if one was close to hand, and some of the features are a little imperfect, but the Series is is nonetheless a big step forward from the featureless TVs of a couple of years ago.

Rating: 4.50 stars
